Boarding at Old Town Animal Care Center

As a pet owner, one of the most important decisions you can make while planning your vacation or business trip is finding a safe, comfortable place for your four-legged friend to stay during your absence. Our cat and dog boarding facility in Old Town can provide your companion with the safety, comfort, and affection they deserve, and give you peace of mind knowing they’re receiving the best care. Our team members enjoy playing and snuggling with our cat and dog-boarding guests whenever possible! We fill up fast for the summer and holidays, so make your reservation well in advance of your trip.

What We Offer At Our Cat and Dog Boarding Facilities in Old Town

Our boarding accommodations include spacious kennels and dog runs. Cats and dogs are always kept in separate areas, to keep the environment as low-stress as possible. For our canine guests, we can arrange group play sessions so they can socialize, have fun and burn off energy. Dogs are taken out for walks several times a day to eliminate and get plenty of exercise. Cat enclosures have separate areas for their litter box for added comfort, and receive individual attention from our staff members. Kennels and runs are cleaned daily, and freshwater is always available.

We also provide clean, comfortable bedding for all cat and dog boarding guests; we cannot guarantee the safe return of items brought from home. You do need to bring your pet’s food if they are on a special diet, though we can provide food if necessary. Food brought from home needs to be in durable containers labeled with your pet’s name and clear directions. Medication/supplements must be in the original container with clear directions and the pet's name. Do not pre-package medications with food. If you have any additional instructions or requests for us, please notify our front desk staff when you drop off your pet.

If you wish, we can send you text updates and photos of your pet to keep you posted on how they’re doing. We know how hard it is to leave a pet behind, even if it’s only for a couple of days.

Holiday Boarding Protocols

Holiday Date Boarding Deposit & Fees

The following is a list of 2024 holiday dates for which we require a deposit. If your pet’s reservation includes any of the dates listed in the date ranges below, your reservation is subject to a $100 deposit due at the time of the reservation booking confirmation.

Two weeks (14 days) prior to your pet’s check-in date, your deposit becomes non-refundable. The remaining cost of the stay will be charged at the time of check-out.

There is a $15 per pet per night holiday surcharge for the below dates to help cover the additional staffing costs on holidays and labor that is required to handle the large volume of pets during this time.

While we understand that travel plans can change, we DO NOT overbook our boarding, and the space for your pet is guaranteed when you provide a deposit.
